Designation: USS Europa Registry Number: NCC-1648 Class: Nimitz Captain: Admiral Anderson (temporarily) Crew Compliment: Unknown Length: Unknown Launch Date: Mid-23rd Century Construction Location: Unavailable Other: - Destroyed during Battle of the Binary Stars - A quad warp nacelle starship
The Europa uses its tractor beam to assist the Discovery at the Battle of the Binaries.
Europa’s has four warp nacelles, the bottom two of which are held in place by arms that bend over from atop the saucer section. This aspect is reminiscent of the USS Reliant, however the Europa does not appear to be a Miranda Class starship. We can see below the Europa’s warp nacelles are farther back than the arm that extends to them from the main ship.

USS Europa takes heavy damage
The USS Europa’s saucer section appears to have cutouts. Were it not for the length of the USS Discovery’s warp nacelles, the Europa and the Discovery would be fairly close in size.
